Number 10 of a limited first edition of 500 signed by the author. Hard cover 10" by 6 1/2" [viii] 114pp. A touch of wear to the corners. Near fine Buckskin Joe, Colorado, also called Laurette, is a deserted ghost town that once served as the county seat of Park County, then a reborn attraction, and finally dismantled and moved to a private ranch. This once flourishing mining camp, located about two miles west of Alma, Colorado, got its start in 1859 when a prospector named Mr. Phillips filed a mining claim.
